The paper was set as if upsc is on dope. People who have written real is ration, rational is real from philosophy perspective, you are doomed. you have to write a generalist essay in case you are wondering..

How do we avoid a complete panic and total blackout? I experienced that today.

While I mostly wrote nonsense, right now the points seem to be coming to me. But I guess we mus revise for tomorrow, and discuss everything in detail only after 16th. All the best.  Hopefully yours went well

It's so easy for upsc to set a paper. Just get a random absurd sounding quote and paste it.

Let us not make prima facie conclusions. There’s more to come. Whoever wrote whatever please believe you’ve written the best and most correct essay and prepare for tomorrow and day after. Please don’t let one paper set the tone for the rest of the week ahead

UPSC testing the thinking and writing skills to the bones. First time I encountered this quote- "History repeats itself, first as a tragedy, second as a farce" was in 2019, during the opening scene of movie 'Enemy'. At that time, I wondered what if someday UPSC ask this as an essay topic. And in 2021 mains they did. 

It's not over yet. Give you best. Good luck.

Let’s avoid such statements till Jan 17th. After that the chaos can follow.

By being aware that panic will happen, by being okay with it, by changing our relationship with anxiety 😊.

Unpopular Opinion: I loved the Essay paper. It was so fluid and full of creative liberties.


PS: Only the scores will pronounce whether this love was justified or just another infatuation. :)

At one level you could say it is a great leveller, very little difference between someone who has prepared vs someone who has not prepared.

At another you could say it was elitist, in favour of people with superior writing skills, and wider reading. However, as the experience has been, people who can simplify a topic, even with average writing skills, can end up winning.

hopefully today's haphazard performance won't bring me down tomorrow and 2.5 years of prep won't just go down the drain. Doesn't matter if I clear or not, as they say full effort is full success.
